Antorus Mythic Progress + History of WF Stats

Recommended Posts

uqQQRaf.jpg
 

Antorus Mythic opens today and the race begins, with a lot to expect. We also take a look at a faction breakdown of all World Firsts in Wow's history. So if you're interested in the WF race, come on in and get back up to speed!

The race to World First is back probably for the final time in Legion, as the gates of Mythic Antorus: the Burning Throne open today as the US and OC servers get first crack at the bosses. This time around the competitors have eleven encounters to deal with, with a Mythic only version of Argus the Unmaker waiting with unknown mechanics at the very end. Hopefully this time around the final boss will be slightly better tuned than Kil'jaeden was, as it took many changes to the encounter to make him even remotely killable (and it still took 7 days for the second guild to down him after Method) which didn't sit well with the top guilds at the time. We also have Limit coming back in full force, with their banned characters returning only a few days ago, but it seems they won't be quite that useful due to lack of gear and AP they've missed out on in the past 6 months.
You can also read up on the progress race from Tomb of Sargeras right here, if you want to go a bit more in-depth in preparing for this race.

Some potential issues/worries for this race are focused around tuning, as the timing of the release is somewhat unfortunate if the bosses end up being truly hard. If the race goes on to the late third reset, which hasn't happened in a long time, but as Antorus is the final raid of Legion might be a possibility, it will head right into Christmas, which isn't quite optimal for the raiders. Even if it ends up being the same length as Tomb of Sargeras, only the World First guild and perhaps a few more will be spared having to raid through the holidays (or having to skip raiding for a few days). Something similar happened in the Nighthold, when Chinese guilds were forced to bow out of the very top competition for a number of days, as it interfered with their New Year's celebrations.

On the flip side, if Blizzard take this into account, or if the raid is undertuned in general, it will end up being a poor ending to the Legion raid race. It's doubtful we'll have a full-on Emerald Nightmare situation on our hands again, and it seems more likely that Mythic Argus is more likely to be over than undertuned at this point.

 

As always, we'll be using the progress coverage of the guys over at Method.gg to report on the race, and they've also recently launched the World First Timeline which was updated yesterday with faction icons for all the guilds. They've also gone ahead and counted up the totals for all the World Firsts achieved by the Horde and Alliance, including per expansion and just the endbosses. Take note that their timeline only takes into account 40 and 25 man raids, as well as the highest available difficulty at the time.

Here's a breakdown of all the World Firsts by expansion:

World Firsts Vanilla BC WotLK Cataclysm MoP WoD Legion Total
AdxWbgo.png 7 26 28 16 43 26 23 169
5u4IhPt.png 36 7 21 12 0 4 6 86

Endbosses (only counting raids with at least 2 bosses)

World Firsts Vanilla BC WotLK Cataclysm MoP WoD Legion Total
AdxWbgo.png 3 6 4 4 5 3 4 29
5u4IhPt.png 1 0 0 1 0 0 0 2

And, as with every raid race, there's the overall WF image, again courtesy of Method.gg:

I like how this shit is based on RNG again. As in a friends guild got 7 personal trinkets on Argus, whereas my guild got 0 trinkets on Argus in the first ID.

Blizzard just knows their shit.

lets be honest here tho, those 7 Trinkets wont kill him the Bosses.

So what you're saying is that RNG is R.

Using those chars or not, Limit is 2/11 WFS with Felhounds and AHC, Big Dumb Guild took the top spot on Garothi World Breaker.

 

I hate to say it though, the first two bosses are super easy and not mechanically difficult, while the 3rd boss is more about following the pattern and not letting mechanics overwhelm.  But gratz to Limit and BDG.

      As predicted in our post from a while ago, Druids will be able to customize their Bear/Cat form independently of the currently equipped Legion Artifact in Shadowlands.
      Bear/Cat Druid form tints are currently tied to your character's Hair Color and the various forms are gated behind your currently transmogrified Legion Artifact.
      In Shadowlands, however, you will be able to customize your Druid's Bear & Cat form on the character customization screen, and possibly, in the Barber Shop when it comes to existing characters.
      Note that this won't work for tints that you haven't earned.
      The ChrCustomizationChoice game table has been updated with new entries:
      Claws of Ursoc (Purple) Claws of Ursoc (Gold) Claws of Ursoc (White) Claws of Ursoc (Black) To further support this claim, Blizzard added a new game table named ChrCustomizationDisplayInfo, where they listed all DisplayIDs of the currently available Bear & Cat forms.

      Restodroodopz found out that Legendaries now classify as Legacy in Shadowlands Alpha, and so their bonuses are disabled and won't work for low level characters or in Timewalking anymore.

      The Legion Legendary Sephuz's Secret is labelled as a Legacy item with inactive effects.

      The Sentinel's Eternal Refuge (BoE crafted Legion Legendary) is also marked as a Legacy item, rendering them pretty much useless.
      We did some research and checked out Wrathion's cloak (Ashjra'kamas, Shroud of Resolve Rank 12) with the primary stat increasing effect which remains untouched, so the Legacy thing only seems to apply to Legion Legendaries.

      The same goes for Legendaries from previous expansions, specifically MoP legendary cloaks and WoD rings; they are not tagged as Legacy Items and keep their effects.

      Blizzard has updated the character creation screen, making newly-created characters wear fancier, better-looking armor, to give players an idea about how their class would look wearing an armor set.
      The Demon Hunter, Druid, and Shaman set remains unchanged (thanks @Dejo93), so we're listing the remaining classes that have received new armor sets for preview. Note that the sets are there just for preview and they're not actual starter sets!
      Death Knight

      Hunter

      Mage

      Monk

      Paladin

      Priest

      Rogue

      Warlock

      Ardenweald Zone Preview (Screenshots) Fire Mage Class Changes: June 3rd Ardenweald and Night Fae Covenant (Official Preview) Oribos Portal Added to Portal Rooms in Main Cities Torghast Development Notes: June 3rd
    • By Starym
      We have one of the biggest Torghast updates since Alpha launched today, as all classes are now available and have anima powers, Torments have been revamped to be additional challenges instead of a timer, and a lot more Anima power tweaks, bug fixes etc.
      June 3 (source)
      All classes now have Anima Powers and can venture into Torghast.
      Many classes have received new Anima Powers that affect their Covenant Class abilities.
      Torment Update!
      Torments no longer scale with time.
      Torments are now additional challenges based on the floor types you have encountered on this run.
      Developers’ notes: We’ve heard your feedback that Torments were adding too much time pressure. The Jailer may still torment you on higher levels of Torghast, but Torments will not scale with time. Breath of Coldheart  now increases the health of enemy monsters by a flat percentage based on the number of Coldheart Interstitia floors climbed.
      Mort'regar's Echoes now increase the Magic damage enemy monsters inflict by a flat percentage based on the number of Mort’regar floors climbed.
      Might of the Upper Reaches now increases the Physical damage enemy monsters inflict by a flat percentage based on the number of Upper Reaches floors climbed.
      Developers’ notes: The changes above were inspired by feedback that Torments that reduce your power feel worse than torments that affect your enemies. As always, we will continue to tune and keep a close eye on difficulty. Rewards and Access
      Legendary materials now only drop from cell block runs, not from the Twisting Corridors.
      Developers’ notes: Looting a Resonating Chest may generate a message that says that you have received “bonus materials” for a “timely completion”. This is an artifact from a previous design that has since been removed, and can be ignored. Chests in the Twisting Corridors now drop Twisted Dust , which will be used for cosmetic rewards.
      Portals to the six cell blocks (not the Twisting Corridors) now take you to fully-randomized 6-block runs, rather than the pre-set quest run. This includes a Wayfinder on floor 1 that allows you to choose your difficulty.
      Two of Torghast’s six cell blocks are open per week. For testing purposes, the available blocks will change daily. They will change weekly in the final version of the game.
      Access to the Twisting Corridors will always be available in addition to the two theme blocks.
      Developers’ notes: Players who seek Legendary materials alone can do so in Torghast’s cell blocks, and can earn more materials by climbing higher. Players who are looking for cosmetics, or who simply want to play without pressure, can do so in the Twisting Corridors. More Notes
      This build includes many bug fixes. Thank you very much for your bug reports! Remember: Alpha is alpha. Things will still change, especially rewards, tuning, and Torghast’s interaction with outside systems. We really appreciate all of your testing and feedback. Many huge Torghast changes have arrived today.
